I've been trying to lose the same 50-60lbs. for the past seven years. I was successful a few times and then gained it all back. LIke most people, I blamed the diet. But it wasn't the diet that didn't work, it was me. I didn't know how to work at resisting cravings, free food, and other temptations. I've been sabotaging myself all these years and didn't know it.

While looking for the latest and greatest diet, I came across a book on Amazon called The Beck Diet Solution: How To Think Like A Thin Person by Judith S. Beck. In this book she teaches you how to recognize sabotaging thoughts and how to respond to them. There are tasks that you have to perform everyday in order to be successful on your chosen diet. She doesn't tell what to eat and does not even recommend a diet plan. You choose your plan and her book will help you get through it mentally. Let's face it dieting is hard work, mentally and physically and I need all the help I can get.

If this sounds like you and you want to make this THE year that you get the fat off. Let's create a team and finally cross this goal off of our to do list. You may read more on her website, or on Amazon and/or Barnes and Nobles' websites. You have to buy or borrow this book. I can't explain everything. I got mine's used for under $13.00. LET'S DO IT....FINALLY!!

This would be much cooler if it were a diet created by musical artist Beck.

Odelay your way from phat to folk-rock skinny! Use the power of mental thinking! Be dynamic! Qué Onda Guero!

I guess Beck doesn't recommend developing a sense of humor.

I saw the book on TV and am on the waiting list at the library! Dieting is 95% mental and that is the part that if we conquer, we will have a permanant weight loss. Count me in

From the OP;

I tried to borrow it at the library too and there are literally hundreds of people waiting for it. I decided to buy mine's used at half the price. I got lucky, the book just came out and a discount bookstore already had 1 for less than $13.00. I figured if I didn't like it I could just sell it online. I haven't finished the book, but I'm keeping it. I started the team already and so far it's just me. The team is called MIND OVER MATTER. I'm already on the second week of the book, but starting tomorrow I will post everything that I have written in my diet journal.

When you are ready come on in!

From The OP;

Thanks! I'm flattered that you think my writing is so good that I might be a professional. I am not working for the author I am trying to start a team. One of the tasks in this book to get a diet coach. Someone that can talk you down when you feel like giving up. A diet coach may be your friend, co-worker, an actual professional diet coach or an online support group. I decided to take the online approach since it's free with no time constraints to meet up.

Stop being the spam police and join me! I've already started the team,

Yeah, I gotta say the spammers usually don't recommend borrowing things, or going to the used book store. :-)

spamalamadingdong. If you want to get support from your peers great. But stop pushing Beck's diet solution. He hasn't even made a good record in years.

9:31, how dare you say beck hasn't mad a good record in years? Have you listened to Guero? Guero helped me lose 236 pounds and find the self confidence to finally shave my back hair and go out in public in a speedo. I suggest everyone go out and buy a copy of Beck's entire catalog of music. Don't check it out at the library- that's for suckers. Buy. Buy Buy!

Oh, and I'm going to start a beck appreciation group.

Beck Diet Solution online support group

I think its a great idea to form an online support group around the terrific book The Beck Diet Solution by Dr. Judith Beck.

The book is a psychological program, using the proving science behind Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and applying that to the process of losing weight, managing eating, and exercising.

One of the key steps in the book is to find a Diet Coach. An online group could function as a good diet coach substitute.

CBT, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the most effective type of "therapy" on the market today. The book, The Beck Diet Solution, is written by Dr. Judith Beck, who is one of the world's top experts and trainers in CBT.

The book is written in a conversational style, in plain language, but there is an enormous amount of science between the lines. Managing out Behaviors, Emotions, and Cognitions is not easy, but this book outlines how to do it, over a long period of time.
Of course, one still has to do it.

Its one of the best new approaches out there, and will really get rid of the psychobabble in this field.
Its straight up cognitive behavioral therapy applied to eating right, and exercising.
So its a great idea to have an online support group for the Beck Diet Solution book, by Dr. Judith Beck.

I'm so excited I found this thread! I just started reading the book and I'm hopeful that it will be the "missing link" to losing weight permanently for me. I know what to eat and how. I know that I need to exercise and what I should be doing to lose fat and build muscle. I know about the benefits of drinking plenty of water, taking vitamins, getting good sleep, etc. I just don't know how to change my mind to THINK like a healthy person naturally. I hope this program will be the answer to my prayers.

Thanks for starting the team!

hey, that overview page of the Beck Diet Solution is quite good. One point is that there are 42 days, and it stops around day 30...

I have found the Mind Over Matter group for the Beck Diet Solution to be very helpful, I check it almost everyday.

Beck diet solution

It is an excellent book. I'm working through it and decided that I might achieve "finding a diet coach" by joining a group. If you can tell me how to join your group, I'd be delighted to do so. My username is Murphy2.
